All mediums of two-dimensional artwork are encouraged: paintings, oil, acrylics, watercolors, etc., drawings, colored pencils, pastels, etc. Please visit the website for the Submission Guidelines and Rules and Regulations. All entries must be submitted by March 27, 2024.

The program is of no charge to the students, but there are only 100 spots available, and each student will be required to send a letter of referral/nomination from teaching or counseling staff at their school. Parents are responsible to transport their children to the program and back home. You can find a simple student registration form with the submission deadline of Monday, March 25, 2024 on the website SAGES2024/Mini-Med-School.
